Marta Marie Wakeford passed away peacefully with her family by her side, on Friday, September 18th, 2020. Age 86 years.

Beloved wife of the late Bill Wakeford for 60 years. Dear mother of the late Guy (wife Cathy of Leamington). Deeply loved and respected Nana of Jim and his wife Angela; Aaron and his wife Tina; Carl and his wife Tina; Christine and her husband Doug; and Catherine and her husband Travis. Loving “Grannan” of James Guy, Patrick, William, Vivienne, Amelia, Nathan, Cole, and Charley. Dear sister of Earl Hodgson, Melody Hamilton, Bernie Hodgson, Jim Hodgson, and the late Wendy Hurd. Fondly remembered by her nieces, nephews, other relatives, and friends, especially Mary MacIntyre, Mary Crawford, Anna May and Dennis Gillingham, and Patti West.

We remember Marta’s favourite saying: “Don’t be sad that it is over, be happy that it happened!”

A private Celebration of Marta’s Life will take place at the Logan Funeral Home, 81 James Street, Parry Sound (705-746-5855).

My condolences to everyone. I am going to miss our "front porch" conversations before work. Marta always had a kind word and genuine interest in everything around her.

Very sad to hear about Marta. She and I always visited when I was walking my dog Joe around the Rose Point property. Lovely lady. Always had a good thing to say about life. She'll be sorely missed.
